Poll numbers unchanged as final votes await counting

As of 9 p.m. polling numbers are unchanged from Wednesday morning.

Over 97% of votes have been counted, with remaining ballots left to count from soldiers, inmates, hospital patients and envoys abroad. Those are only expected to be counted later Wednesday or early Thursday.

Barring any major surprises, the tallies are expected to stay mostly the same, with the major questions being whether New Right remains below the electoral threshold and Balad above it.

Because of a constellation of complicated leftover vote sharing agreements, the final tally of seats could still shift slightly, but not in a way that will significantly alter the makeup of the two main blocs, center-left and right-wing.
